Conversations about diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) can be notoriously difficult for leaders — but why is that so? What is necessary to have inclusive conversation and authentic connection?
What’s more, how can college campuses foster diversity, equity, and inclusion? How have stakeholder expectations around leadership and communication on DEIB issues changed, and how do we address and manage these new expectations?
These questions and more will be examined and discussed at AFIT’s first Virtual Deep Dive. The program includes two workshops, where expert learning partners will facilitate deep conversations about DEIB issues for leaders in the higher education space.
Virtual Workshop 1: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging – Courage, Culture & Communication
Learning Partner: Erika McMullen, Founder & CEO, Moxie Consulting Group
During this facilitated session, you will gain a deeper understanding into why DEIB conversations are so difficult, identify your personal derailers, learn what is needed for authentic connection, and receive a communication framework.
Virtual Workshop 2: Strategic Considerations for Managing and Responding to Social Issues
Learning Partner: Steve Rochlin, CEO, Impact ROI
During this facilitated session, you will gain a better understanding of how college campuses define social issues and social risks and gain a framework to determine when and how to get involved.
